I went into It Follows without expectations — and I left feeling like I had to talk about it. It just nails a lot of the things I spend most of my time worrying about. Rather than worrying about fears surrounding a scary monster we all know doesn't exist in real life, It Follows deals with the dread we know too well from feeling it every day. And what's more scary than the creeping sense that nothing we do will really change anything, and that death awaits regardless? Nothing, I say.
Talking about all that and more with me this week is my childhood buddy, Ryan Maffei. He is a Robert-Christgau-reviewed musical artist, a liner-note author and an all-around really smart and artful dude who can string a great conversation.
